Tip of the Week: Free Mulch

Here’s a mulching tip from one of our e-news readers:

I have found a good source of mulch is shredded trimmings from utilities prunning around wires.  The shredders are glad to give you a half load.  I used the shredded branches for paths and large areas of mature shrubs and trees.  I don’t recommend them for flowers or vegetable gardens.  Use gloves when handling the mulch as it may contain poison ivy.  The mulch goes to pieces in a couple of years, leaving good humus.
